In a nutshell

Adopting a coaching approach promotes initiative. In organisations where leaders are directive, people become used to having someone else telling them what to do and solving their problems for them. Identifying solutions rather than following orders is the key to unlocking creativity and innovation in others. 

In today’s fast moving world, with rapid cycles of change and disruption and markets moving at a million miles an hour, creativity and innovation are even more critical skills that we must nurture and harness.

A coaching approach is the most effective approach to development because when we come to the answers and achieve a goal for ourselves, the psychological impact is far greater than if we do so by simply following orders. 

In this 3 hr session we will:
  • Explore the difference between training and coaching and when to apply each
  • Practicing the essential skills of coaching – active listening & letting go of the outcome – and using the GROW model for coaching conversations
  • Identify areas where and when we can to apply coaching in the moment in the organisation, and where we can improve our coaching skills required to adopt a coaching approach in our organisation 
What impact can this have for our team
  • Growth owned and driven by the individual 
  • Increases resilience, self-efficacy and confidence
  • Drives a culture of creativity and innovation

  • We're absolutely thrilled to have found a partner like T-! They're not your typical training company that offers off-the-shelf programs. What sets them apart is their refreshing and effective learning design approach. They actually take the time to listen to key stakeholders, making sure they tackle the right issues head-on. The result was a customized training program that perfectly fit the needs and context of our people managers.

  • What most impressed me about T- in the Coach, Achieve, Transform program was collaboration and scientific mastery. Grounded on solid research, T- guided us through co-creation sessions using design thinking techniques. Being incredibly open to feedback, Carlo, Phil and the team incorporated how brain mechanisms work in the face of real scenarios from OutSystems and did incremental adjustments considering the debriefing from each session. As a result, the NPS of the program was 71%, with 98% of our managers reporting they will likely use what they have learned in the training program! At OutSystems, we are keeping T- as a preferred partner!
